A Spiritual Journey
By Wendell Berry
For some reason this 4th birthday of my son has left me reflecting on the journey that we are on. It is all a journey of inches, not miles. Each inch is growth and many inches lead to miles. I look back and recall how long it took him to learn to blow. Something that is so simple for other children was difficult for him, and inch by inch he learned and now... the inches led to the mile of blowing out his candles on his cake. It is a journey, every inch of it.
